Whether you're in the cold weather of Alaska or the hot desert of Arizona, it's important to understand how to use and care for your Goal Zero Yeti Portable Power Station in extreme temperatures. In cold and hot conditions, the Yeti may stop accepting a charge or outputting power, which can be frustrating and potentially dangerous in an emergency.
Here's what you need to know to keep your Yeti running smoothly in extreme temperatures.
COLD WEATHER USAGE
If you’re planning on using your Yeti Power Station in cold (sub-freezing) conditions, there’s a possibility you’ll run into some issues. When Yetis are too cold (32°F), they will stop accepting a charge, and if they’re even colder (-4°F), they’ll stop outputting power. A simple solution – keep your Yeti in an insulated area. That extra layer of insulation and the natural heat created by the Yeti during use or while charging will help keep your Yeti working well in those frigid temperatures.
HOT WEATHER USAGE
Just like the Yetis don’t particularly enjoy extreme cold, they don’t operate at peak performance when placed in extreme heat either. They can stop accepting a charge at around 113°F and stop outputting power at around 149°F. Keeping proper ventilation around your Yeti at all times will help mitigate any potential mishaps while working in extremely hot conditions. In order to better protect them, we’ve also added special features into the Yetis, such as automatic cooling systems. If you have a Yeti power station in the back of your car on a hot summer day and you hear a noise, it’s probably the fan kicking on to keep it cooled off.
STAY PREPARED, STAY POWERED
Following these guidelines can help ensure that your Yeti stays in good working condition in extreme temperatures. With proper care and usage, your Yeti will be a reliable power source for all your emergency and outdoor needs. Whether you're camping in the wilderness or preparing for a natural disaster, a Yeti can be a lifesaving asset. Keep it charged and protected, and it will be ready to power your essential equipment whenever needed. With our sustainable, renewable solar energy source, you can feel good about using the Yeti in any situation. Stay prepared and stay powered with a Goal Zero Yeti Portable Power Station.
